White collar boxing for Jack

A white collar boxing event takes place in the Dandelion Bar and Night Club in Dublin's Stephens Green on Friday in aid of the Jack Kavanagh Trust.

Billy Glynn, a final year law student in Trinity College, will take to the ring to fight Shamie O’ Keefe, another class mate from Fethard, Co Tipperary.
The bout is to raise funds for Dunshaughlin student, Jack Kavanagh, a pharmacy student who broke his neck in an accident on holidays in August 2012 when simply diving into a wave on a beach.
He has no feeling below his upper chest, has limited use of his arms, and no use of his hands or fingers. No insurance will pay for his care in the years ahead, but he is determined to create as normal a life for himself as he can.
Billy Glynn is a keen sportman who played soccer, tennis, golf and rugby.
He suffered a cruciate ligament injury, from which he is now almost fully recovered and while very upset to hurt his knee, this was a minor set back in comparasion to what his former Clongowes schoolfriend Jack suffered.
